The debut in the best baseball in the world of the Cuban infielder Michael Vargas it was excellent. The talented Dodgers player made his debut on Wednesday and practically everything in that performance was positive. Until a record for the franchise matched.
The son of the legendary former Industriales player, Lázaro Vargas, started with a wide berth by hitting a long double through the same center field against Giants starter Alex Cobb. The hit (he was leaving in 14 Major League stadiums) happened in the second episode and served to put those led by Dave Roberts ahead.
